What is the Cadiz Freedom Swim?
The Cadiz Freedom Swim is one of the toughest, most extreme long-distance cold water sea swim races in the world - 7.5km from Robben Island to Blouberg, Cape Town. This channel is renowned for its bitterly cold water (between 9 and 14 degrees) and strong, unpredictable currents.
The swim raises funds for the Vista Nova School for children with special learning needs in Cape Town.
The race begins at 10am from Murray's Bay on World Heritage Site, Robben Island, and ends on the beach in Big Bay, Bloubergstrand.
